How to measure for curtains

Readymade Curtains

Always use a metal tape measure for accuracy and double check your measurements


Existing Track

Width - A
Measure the width of your existing track.

Drop - B
Measure from the top of the curtain track to where you want the drop (length) of the curtain to finish.

No Track

Width - C 
Measure the window frame from edge to edge and allow enough space at each side for the curtains to clear the window, we recommend 20cm each side.

Drop - D
Measure from the top edge of the window frame to the lower edge of the window frame.

You will then need to decide which drop you want from our range of ready made curtain drops and install your track accordingly. Our curtains come in drops of 160cm, 205cm, 220cm or 240cm.

We recommend installing your track at least 10cm above your window, space permitting. This creates the illusion of height in the room as your eye is drawn above the window.
